    The Eickhorn factory was the only one who worked with benchmark numbers, so if you see a benched crossguard you will know its an eickhorn and would be attached on a Eickhorn dagger only!

    So far its still not clear if the benchmark number is a number that related to a assembler of daggers or an internal controller who examined the dagger before it got packed.
    Not all inner parts are benchmarked so we can faily say its not to keep the parts separated from other parts.
    I tend to go for the assembler version, so it could be traced who build it.

    A benchmarked crossguard on a dagger other then an Eickhorn is Always a parts dagger, it was an internal controle system used in their own factory.

    Cheers,
    Ger

    to also add to what Gerrit has stated...not all Eickhorn crossguards were stamped. It was a matter of Quality control and a dagger guard may have been stamped..1 every 50 to 1 every 100. It could of been 1 in 10..the exact QC numbers are not known. Regards Larry

    So the most rare thing on this dagger is without a doubt the Eickhorn Crossguard.

    The dagger was sold a few minutes ago. The last 20 minutes there were 3 persons "fighting" over it.
    Finally the dagger was sold for appr. 1325:- EURO. (9600 sek + 22,5% + 50 sek).

    I would like to add to this thread that 2 days ago I visited the auction house myself, to examine the dagger "for real". I showed the auctionhouse all the "evidence" that pointed in the "fake direction". It was obvious they were no dagger experts... But the bottom line is that nothing really happened and the fact remains - the dagger was sold today for a very high price.

    I can see the new owner respectfully transferred his hard earned cash into a circular account.
